Abstract

Mima-like mounds in the Laramie Basin, are circular in plan view, lens- or funnel-shaped in cross-section, and frequently have relief of 15 to 65 cm. They consist of churned materials derived from adjacent/subjacent soils and sediments. This paper documents the stratigraphic character of 5 inactive mounds and one active mound exposed in natural and artificial cuts on Harmony and Stock Farm surfaces. It discusses the relevance of the groundwater vortex hypothesis and mound-age relationships based on stratigraphy and radiocarbon control
